    Amn Tal Pruby + shield.

    However, this gets you a more or less random number of sockets. 1/6 chance for 1, 2 or 3 sockets and 3/6 chance for 4 sockets (since 5 or 6 would round down to 4)

    Won't work for cracked or superior shields, but ethereal ones will get a 50% extra base defense bonus on top of the etherealness.

    You could always take it to larzuk. He'd give it max sockets.

    The only reason you'd want to use the cube recipe for that one is:
    1) You want less than 4os
    2) Its eth (which its not)

    Use Larzuk. Getting 1-2 sockets woul make that shield worthless. and there is a 1/3 chance of that happening withe the cube.

    Blues have a 50:50 chance of 1 or 2 sox. In 1.07 however, you could get 1-4 sockets. But no circlet type helm can have more than 1 socket in 1.07

    not to hijack the thread but figured my question was similar. What do you guys do if you find a superior item but don't need to get max sockets? For instance, Superior Grand Matron Bow, i guess you can't use the cube recipe to get 4os? If you do the socket quest, you'll get 5os which is pretty much worthless. Charsi food?
